Aishwarya a remarkable hands-on mother: ‘Jazbaa’ director

Mumbai, Sep 26 (IANS) Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta feels Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is good at balancing her work commitments along with her motherly duties. He says she is a “remarkable hands-on mother”, who smoothly juggles her work.

Aishwarya is making her comeback on the silver screen with Gupta’s film “Jazbaa”.

Recalling an incident from the shooting of the crime thriller, the filmmaker said in a statement: “Once Aaradhya was unwell. I felt guilty shooting so I offered to cancel the shoot but Aishwarya insisted we carry on.

“We were shooting all night when at 3 a.m. her staff came running and said: ‘She’s just vomited’. When I inquired who had vomited, the staff said it’s Aaradhya. That’s when we realised that Aaradhya had been in the van on location all through the shoot.”

“The family was out of town and Aishwarya didn’t want to disrupt the movie schedule. So she brought her along instead of cancelling the shoot. If I were in her place, I’d have cancelled the shoot. I wouldn’t want to take my unwell child to work. Nobody would do that,” he added.

Praising Aishwarya’s dedication as a parent, Gupta said: “She’s a remarkable hands-on mother, father, doctor, nanny, and nurse all rolled into one.”

Produced by Zee Studios, Viiking Media and Entertainment and White Feather Films, “Jazbaa”, which also stars Irrfan Khan, is slated to release on October 9.
